Biden is probably their best shot but he’s a little dodgy and has ties to all the same Clinton Obama stuff that Trump rolled over them last time.

Maybe Gabbard could win but they won’t give her a chance.

Can’t see Biden winning the rust belt.

Impeach Trump but then what about the 60 mil people who voted for him. Not sure there’s a way back to the old war economy thing.

Gabbard is not even a real Democrat.  She runs off to Fox Nees first chance she gets.  And she has a bunch of dodgy shlt of her own.  There’s a reason she polling in the single digits

The Blues on that disc is the best version of the track and one of the best tracks ever recorded by this band. In an alternative universe were the saga wasn't botched, that version of the track would be remembered and played on stations just like Sweet Child O'Mine as a classic.

Those of you that chose Atlas Shrugged over it were 100% wrong.

I don't really disagree with you but I think Atlas is a bit more interesting musically.

I've never seen a band or management so antagonistic toward their fans like Team Brazil and GNR.  Do they realize that some of these fans they've pissed off go to multiple shows plus buy (overpriced) merchandise there?

Recency bias is definitely in play with Perhaps but Atlas is fucking legit.


Listening to Perhaps right now needs work... especially that chorus. It's like he had to squeeze it in there too tightly.

It does have major potential. Interesting if it really was dropped down to the B list.

I'm wondering if it got a title change later on and it's one of the songs that was in play for Chinese and PRL

I mean no offense to the band but they were in no position to be tossing tracks like this into the scrap heap while songs like Silkworms and Scraped stayed in contention.

It (Perhaps) is like 2/3 or 1/2 a good song.  I think it needs another verse or more guitar work or something to make it truly great.

Shacklers is pretty much a lower tier song that somehow made it over Atlas and Perhaps.

Voting for Maddy again.

Regarding the two "new" tracks:  I think Atlas Shrugged it a bit more complete and polished.  I think Perhaps is a bit short and probably needs to be fleshed out a bit more.

We probably should crowdsource an index to make better use of the PDF.

Page 1 is a black box, however I once saw an image (taken from a video game) that is said to have been the cover art for it, along with the hastag "#4U2NVNH8" which some folks speculate is a secret code among some of the hoarders.

Page 2 lists studio and recording engineer information.

Pages 3 and 4 list recording engineer information.

Page 5 has emails from people involved with the album, or their representatives.

Page 6 to 10 are titled "Guns N’ Roses Plans for the Future" with trivia (can we verify any of this?) such as "No trickery" being originally titled "A Right to Bear Arms," and that the last song Slash and Axl composed together was "Central Park." It also alleges that the next album is finished but that it has not been turned over to Axl due to unpaid fees. 

Anybody want to take the next 10 pages?

Good work there!
I've read up to page fifty and man I was lost.. private message between hoarders and such, who leaked what and so on.. nothing exciting as I thought it would be.

I stopped at around 50 too.  Most of it is just the hoarders going back and forth.

Madascgar again.  I can't believe it's lasted this long.

#8 Re: Guns N' Roses » disappointed in axl and fernando » 4 weeks ago

Lofton is right.  Most of the "fanbase" just wants to hear the hits.  The leaks only interest hardcores which make up a small percentage of those (who go to concerts).  This is how it is in 2019.  New music or new material isn't really required for an artist.  If you make most of your money from touring,  that means you're mostly playing the stuff the people are familiar with.

Most of the fanbase doesn't give a shit about the CD leaks or era.  I wish there was a way to be less harsh about it but that's the truth.

Voted for Madagascar.  Atlas grew on me as I listened to it more and more
